I don't think so. But they are a reputable company, and you shouldn't have
any problems with the transaction once you secure an account from the morons
at Paypal.


Supposedly PayPal accounts were easy to obtain in the past, but now you have
to fax them your life story, all your bank statements, and your last
colonoscopy result. I told them what a hassle it was and that I would use
their competition, and that they could pretty much bite me, and they replied
with account approval.


Or you can pay me and I can order it for you.


If you need someone to do the mod, I can do it (negotiate price offline).
Pixsends the PCB card with a segment of unshielded bare-ass wire, which I
recommend you promptly throw in the trash.
